California Energy Crisis

Continue to be involved in the multibillion dollar restructuring and bankruptcy matter arising from the 2000-2001 California energy crisis. We represent Powerex Corp., a subsidiary of BC Hydro and one of the largest sellers of energy to the State of California and its independently operated utilities: Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison, and San Diego Power & Gas. We also represented Portland General Electric, another major supplier of electricity to the utilities in California as well as the largest subsidiary of Enron. We also represented Powerex and Portland General Electric in the significant Chapter 11 case of major energy companies such as Pacific Gas & Electric, Enron Corp., and Mirant Corporation.
